The Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl is not just about the game but the whole bowl week experience! Fans can get the party started the night before the game with a trio of FREE events, including the Explore Louisiana Mardi Gras Preview Parade, Battle of the Marching Bands and a free concert. The parade kicks off the night from the Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets and runs through the East Bank District. That leads into the Battle of the Bands, a fireworks show and the concert in the East Bank District!
